About Barmouth

Those in search of a British beach break need look no further than southern Snowdonia’s seaside town of Barmouth. Welcoming for both family groups and those wanting a bit of peace and quiet, the expansive golden sands have room for all.

Set on the estuary of the River Mawddach, the picturesque town is framed by open sea to the front and dramatic mountains behind. So whether you’re a landlubber or a water baby, there are equal opportunities for hill walking, cycling and various water sports.

Heritage hunters will be interested to note that it was the land just behind Barmouth, Dinas Oleu, that became the first ever property to be donated to the National Trust. Visitors to the area can explore the beautiful gorse covered hillside that was entrusted by its owner, Mrs Fanny Talbot, for public enjoyment back in 1895.

The harbour town is home to an assortment of pubs and restaurants, serving fresh seaside fare, and al fresco dining is particularly popular throughout the summer. Ice cream in hand, you can wander around notable buildings such as the Ty Gwyn tower house or St John’s Church, and a spectacular stroll along the Barmouth Bridge is the ideal way to work off any evening meal.
